Lions vs Rams Prediction & NFL Odds for Week (Week 7

by Jacob DeanOctober 20, 2021
  • Rams off to a 5-1 start
  • Lions currently hold the #1 pick in next summer’s draft
  • Matt Stafford looks reenergized

The LA Rams currently sit at 5-1 and are finally headed back home after a successful two weeks of being on the road. It’s a nice matchup for Stafford and company as they are taking on the winless Detroit Lions before heading back on the road to face off with the Houston Texans.

The Lions haven’t had the same luck this season as the team is 0-6 but despite their losses have only lost by more than 11 twice this season. This is going to be a high-energy game between the two teams as Stafford and Goff are playing against the team that drafted them but were traded for one another this offseason.

Betting Odds & Lines for This Game

Lions vs Rams Prediction: Spread

The month of October has been nice to the LA Rams as they have only lost one game and this continues to be one of the team’s easier stretches. With the Lions in town and then off to face the Texans this team has a chance to jump out to a 7-1 one start. The schedule does unfortunately get stronger from there.

In their most recent win, the Rams defeated the Giants with relative ease and despite the Rams being such lopsided favorites when the lines opened up. This week that trend continues as the spread on this contest is even more lopsided.

Take the cautious approach of 15.5 with this game. Despite being at home, this is a tough game for the Rams. The Rams have been playing so well as of late that this is a game they could play down to their opponent. Goff is also making his return to LA and could have one of his best games of the season. Dan Campbell was unhappy with his quarterback after their week 6 loss and had some choosy words for him so the motivation for Goff should be there.

Lions vs Rams Prediction: MoneyLine

The Rams have gotten off to shaky starts in nearly every game this season. While they have gotten it going later in their games, head coach Sean McVay has expressed his interest in his team getting off to a better start. The Giants were missing some key defensive players that helped propel the Rams to lopsided victory. McVay knows while this team is playing great football there is still more work to be done.

Expect the moneyline to change a handful of times before the opening kick of this game and that could be beneficial toward LA if you are wanting to be on them.

Lions vs Rams Prediction: Total

Twice this season the Rams have had a victory margin of over or at 11 points. This was against the Bears and the New York Giants. It’s easy to take the Rams in this contest as winners. The Lions are headed towards the number one pick after this season and while they have played well enough to win, luck has not been on their side.

The Rams excel at putting points on the board and have been hard to contain in the passing game. Taking the over in this contest would be the safe bet as Stafford is going against the team that drafted him 10 years ago. He is going to be focused and ready to go from the opening kick and should have himself quite the afternoon.

Prop Predictions

Stafford has been really good this season and has answered the call of how good he can be leading a title-contending team. I like for Stafford to throw for over 300 yards in this game and 4 touchdowns.

The Rams are in the top 5 in nearly every statistical offensive category in the league and especially in the passing game. The WR core and even tight end package will prove to be too much for a stingy Lions team.
